Candy Free Easter Basket

Candy Free Easter Basket

So I sort of forgot that Easter is on Sunday!  It seems early this year which I think is why it slipped my mind.  Well, that and the whole pregnancy brain thing….

Luckily my friends at Personalized Creations didn’t forget and sent me a personalized basket for The Love Nugget a few weeks ago.

Birthday and Valentine’s Day weekend

Birthday and Valentine’s Day weekend

Good morning!

Hope you all had an amazing weekend!   I sure did!

As I mentioned on Friday, I celebrated my birthday this past weekend.  The big 35!  Yeah, I feel so old!  Especially since I’m pregnant and definitely feeling aches, pains and extra tired.  Regardless, the weekend was a lot of fun and I was spoiled by my boys!

We kicked off the weekend Friday evening at Skipolini’s for dinner with friends.  Trying to get pictures with kids and adults in a crowded restaurant is near impossible.  But one of my friends did manage to snap a pic of these boys who were having a blast running around together.

Happy New Years Eve!

Okay so I admittedly didn’t realize it was NYE today until yesterday morning.  It’s never really been all that of an exciting holiday for me and this year is no different.  Actually, while most people are toasting to a new year, I’ll most likely be in bed since I can barely make it up past 9:00pm these days!   We will probably stay home, get takeout and watch the New Years Eve celebration on Netflix while sipping on sparkling apple cider.   New Years Day we have big plans to take down our Christmas decorations and clean our house.  Which I’m both sad and excited about.  I love having Christmas decorations up but I’m ready to clean up and start the New Year fresh!

Speaking of the New Year, I thought I’d finish up 2015 with a short round up with my top 5 food posts from the last year.  I didn’t do as much recipe creating as I’ve done in the past but the few that I did do were definitely enjoyed!

Merry Christmas Eve and Family Pictures 2015

Merry Christmas Eve and Family Pictures 2015

It’s Christmas Eve!   I know one little boy who is VERY excited.  As I’m sure most kids are today.  We try not to spoil him but I have to admit this year he is getting a little spoiled.  Partly by accident (thats what happens when you start shopping early and have pregnancy brain) and partly because we know this is his last Christmas as an only child.  Things will most likely be different next year and the years to come so we wanted to make him feel extra special this year.

Plus he is a really good kid 🙂

We start our celebrations today with family coming this evening for dinner then we have a nice quite Christmas tomorrow with just the three of us.  Well, five if you count our furry friends.

Who by the way got hair cuts for the festivities 🙂

Then the day after my father in-law, his wife, my dad, grandpa and brothers are coming down for another Christmas celebration.  We like to drag things out around here.  So for the next few days you won’t see much of me around here but thought I’d leave you today with a little recap from our most recent family photo session.

Every year around November we prepare for our family photo session.  Having only one child makes things go a little smoother but so does having a photographer that’s REALLY good at her job and has known your family for several years.

We’ve been lucky enough to have the same wonderful photographer since The Love Nugget was born. [Read more…]

Stocking Stuffer Ideas

It’s crunch time people!  7 days until Christmas!  Are you ready?  I finished up most of my Christmas shopping this week just have a few stocking stuffers left to get.  Speaking of stocking stuffers, what are some of your favorites to receive?  When we turned 18 our grandparents started putting scratchers in our stockings after we used to try to steal our parents.  We would all sit and scratch away hoping one of us would come out the big winner!

If you’re like me and saved your stocking stuffers until last…  Here’s a few ideas to fill stocking for both guys and girls!

Holiday Fun and Pregnancy Update #1

Holiday Fun and Pregnancy Update #1

Good morning friends!

How was your weekend?  Do anything festive?  Holiday party?  Christmas shopping?  We did a little bit of everything.  Some Christmas shopping, festive movies and two holiday parties.  Unfortunately I wasn’t feeling so hot.  Last week I had been feeling so much better and thought I was past the first trimester hump.  Thursday I had a little headache and it just continued on through Sunday.  It was at it’s peak each night in the midst of each party.  So I didn’t get a chance to enjoy both nights as much as I would have liked to.   Regardless they were still fun!

Friday evening we had a little holiday party at Afterburn.  We left at 9:00 but I heard the party went on well into the early morning hours.  It was a good one!
